lazy, sore, tired gorgeous saturday



we are both sore. and both tired. jambaloney fell asleep in his chair reading his book a little while ago - i really wanted to wake him and move him to the bed but he is out cold and i don't want to disturb him. we have been painting our kitchen cupboards, hauling rocks, shovelling over our compost heap, getting the seed starting tray ready and a bunch of other things over the past week. we are both sore and tired!

we went to bed late last night as both of us were too sore to lay down in bed - bahahahah - isn't that crazy-sounding? even with many trips to the hottub over the past few days and nights, we are still sore from being cramped up trying to paint the crappy cupboards - 3 coats of primer and 2 coats of white paint - ugh! and then last night apparently i was sleep-talking about food to jambaloney. he told me that i woke him 3 times from a dead sleep talking about nonsense - something that i have done since i was a child. i sleepwalk, too!

whenever i sleeptalk or sleepwalk it means that i didn't get a good night's rest. same for poor jambaloney - why he puts up with me, i'll never know? maybe it's because i make a mean stir-fry, or maybe it's because i bought him a canoe! anyway, i didn't sleep well and neither did he, what with me waking him up 3 times! and then at some point in the night our mouser, barrel, brought in a weasel. a beautiful, white one according to jambaloney - i didn't see it thank goodness. our other cat noodle woke up jambaloney at about 5am, playing with the weasel! jambaloney picked it up and brought it to a safe place outside and we are not certain if it is dead or just in shock. i don't want to go and look and see if it is still there. i hope it got over it's shock and is frolicking in the forest now.

i was sitting at my computer reading some blogs and realized just how cramped and sore i felt. so i went out and got in the hottub. it's a really gorgeous day out there - the birds are really feeling spring in the air and are chirping like mad! i have daylillies in pots that are popping their green heads out of the dirt. the air smells wonderful! i got in the hottub and relaxed my poor, sore, arthritic hands. it felt wonderful.

the only thing missing was jambaloney. he's still flopped in his big, comfy chair and out cold. poor guy is so tired. i am not going to let him do any jobs today - i will take him for a nice walk down to the river later though. and i am going to go and make him some dinner in a few. the smell of food cooking always wakes him.

i hope you all are having a gorgeous saturday too!

  1. Imagine if you made stir-fry in a canoe? Irresistible! Nothing like the night's sleep that follows hard work.

  2. A day of rest is well deserved sometimes. Maybe he's so tired because he's walking on one leg? After all, you gave me his left one! =P Enjoy your day.

    Proud owner of Jam's left leg,

    3. Translated from Frog speak it means "limpleg" usually in connection with someone with a "wooden" leg or prosthesis.

  3. Hey Kymber - Look at that blue, blue sky again ! Take it easy today and rest your sore aching bones. I only got one hour sleep last night and feel like I've been hit by a dump truck ! Tons to do though, so I'll have to drag myself around.

    I'm working on an email response - slow but steady.

    Enjoy your walk ! xoxox

  5. Kymber and Jam, Even the hardest workers must take a day off just piled into a comfy chair or a hottub. I also occasionally talk in my sleep. I am quite articulate there, I am told. My dh says that I can converse quite readily without any memory of such a conversation the following day. Our oldest son, who shall remain nameless for this exchange, as he is embarassed by my telling such stories, sleepwalks. Once about six years ago, he wandered while asleep to another farm in the autumn. He returned with bloody ankles and feet, and has a vague recollection of wandering through a neighbors farm and forest with dogs chasing him.

    1. Jane - it's true - we did need the day off - we've been getting a lot of stuff done and it was time for a day of rest! i am like you - i never remember talking in my sleep - but poor jambaloney does because i wake him right up! oh your poor son! i have woken up while sleepwalking and found myself outside. i also woke up one night while sleepwalking and i was in my neighbours apartment - i quickly just snuck back out - bahah! i told him about it the next day tho! xoxo
